China Stamp
Name: Chinese Fable--Kong Rong gives up the biggest pear
Number: 2007-14T
Issue date: 2007 June 1st

The legendary Kong Rong (153-208) was one of the role models of courtesy, as he always placed other people's interest above his own. And this was already evident when he was very young. A famous incident happened when he was about four years old.

He was the second youngest of six boys. One day, his father asked him to pick a pear from a plate; he chose the smallest, reasoning that his elder brothers and the youngest brother should have the bigger ones.

This well-known story, also mentioned in the Three Character Classic, has been commonly used to educate children even nowadays on the values of courtesy and fraternal love.
